kelly howell brandman
My first experience with Brandman was when I was a special education teacher. My district paired up with Brandman for an autism certificate.  I liked it because I was able to still work and do everything else I needed to do. I liked the way the program was – the online component plus in-face classes.
Kelly H. | MA, Educational Leadership and Administration,
The MAELA program was beyond invaluable. So much of what I was asked to do was relatable to my job. The people affiliated with the program know what works in education.
Meg V. | MA, Educational Leadership and Administration,
I started the program because I knew I wanted to lead with a job that had more responsibility and would have more impact. I've reached my goal. Five years later, I am a Doctor of Education, a better leader and person and my school districts and students have benefited from my improved leadership.
Michelle H. | Education, Ed.D,
The MAELA program was rigorous, but the professors and staff were incredibly supportive, flexible and helpful as we moved throughout our 20 months together. I have graduated my program with the confidence to go out into the world of education and be a knowledgeable educational leader.
